This is the floor in my spouse's office. I took these photos before we had a good camera. We live in a small home, and we are making use of every bit of space with our renovations. His office is in the carport. It's wood tile that we didn't grout, because it has texture, and it really does look old installed; visitors actually touch it to see if it is wood. We had a lot of success with "wood porcelain tile".
My daughter would have loved wood floors in her shed, but a wood floor is not practical for this location. So we went to a tile shop, because she wanted light "wood" floors, and all the porcelain samples were much darker at our usual first stop. Here they had at least ten types of light colored porcelain wood tiles, but she narrowed it down to three.
We took these photos with the phone.
She thought this, "gray."
She thought this was, "nice". But she also thought it was a little busy. She talked about her ideas for the ceiling, and didn't want them to clash.
Was it too gray with too much yellow and not enough white?
This one had a bit of gray, a bit of warmer tones, and a bit of white, but more subdued.
Which one did she choose?
She chose the third one: Shelburne Pecan Wood Plank 8 x 48 inches
with Mapei 01 Alabaster Kera Color grout. She did the calculation that it was 96 square feet and determined how many boxes we needed. We mortared it over cement board, because the subfloor is wood. Silver the cat is the helper out here. As you can see we have some of the insulation in before the electrician. At some point, I should change the name of the shed. It really is nice, really a little cottage, and she is a taskmaster.
Thank you for following along on our adventures.
